From the reviews:

"This edited volume ??? focuses on the psychology of interrogations, confessions and entrapment. ??? The chapters address not only what occurs inside the interrogation room, but also how resulting confessions are perceived by legal decision-makers and how psychologists can become involved further in the research area. ??? Lassiter has created a volume that is comprehensive, well written, and that represents a significant addition to the literature in the area of interrogations and confessions." (Melissa B. Russano, Applied Cognitive Psychology, Vol. 20 (1), 2006)
